Excellent work. What did you use to polish the rods?

Those rods look a bit suspect to me. Did they check out ok when they were tested? Not that costly to get engine parts properly checked, and its surprising that people spend so much time on preparing parts, which in some cases are certain to be scrap.

The man has a scale to balance the rods to fractions of a gram. I would have faith the big ends are round and the rods are straight.

Instead of getting in a term pissing contest like Benesesso seems to enjoy I'm just going to pop in and say great work and meticulous build! Thanks for taking the time to post. You clearly know what you are doing so why would someone try to come in and start a trivial argument? Potato potato go polish your own darn rod!

I just looked at this on my IPad, the pics look even better on a big screen. I absolutely love the attention to detail. I would love even more detail in your documentation. Specific processes for each step.

I crave knowledge like this.
